Jewelers in Dana Point Offer 50% OFF Colored Gemstones

Lapis Lazuli and Gems N’ Loans Dana Point


In the fourteenth century, lapis lazuli stones were ground up and mixed with oils to create the highly prized and very expensive ultramarine used by artists such as Leonardo da Vinci’s in paintings in the Sistine Chapel. Ultramarine were also known as "blue gold,” because they were more expensive than gold in those days. Lapis was forbidden to commoners in ancient Egypt, and only royalty were permitted wear it. Blue was divine to them, so lapis was ground into a powder, then used to add color to the royal Egyptians and their statues. Lapis necklaces were also given to shy Egyptian children to help them be more courageous.

Ancient Hebrews believed the blue azurite in lapis was symbolic of heaven and the gold pyrite flecks symbolic of the sun, and some Biblical scholars believe that Moses' Ten Commandments were carved on lapis tablets.
